The 5 Pillars of Consideration When Selecting and Implementing a Treasury Management System

As treasury departments undergo the selection and implementation of a Treasury Management System vendor, there are several key pillars they should keep in mind. The transition to a TMS can change a treasury department from a primarily supportive role and into the role of strategic advisor and risk manager. For a treasury department, having the right technology in place is essential to their success! The use and need of Treasury Management Systems (TMS) have become abundantly clear over the past years. Companies are looking for technology solutions to gain greater visibility into cash, streamline processes, and improve controls. However, once a TMS vendor is selected the real journey has just begun. This session will discuss the pillars of consideration as your treasury team selects a TMS vendor, as well as the steps involved during the implementation process of a TMS. Selection and implementation are key elements in the TMS lifecycle, as they are the true groundwork to a successful project. This fastpaced session will emphasize all the components necessary to select and implement a TMS on time and within budget.

Eric Reyhle is Vice President of Business Development at GTreasury. Prior to joining GTreasury, Eric has driven enterprise technology sales within financial services for over 15 years, directing sales activities for Financial Market Data Vendors and Enterprise Data Management providers. He is based in Denver and manages the Central and Western territories at GTreasury.
